Summer is a slow season in City Hall. City Council is not in session. Fewer people bother to visit the Registrar of Deeds. And I like to think that the young couples are at the beach instead of wandering the hallways looking for the Marriage License office.

It’s a great time for trying new things. So we took our office on the road one day each week, visiting neighborhood streets with lots of stores to ask local businesses to help promote voting. There were lots of surprises.

El verano es una temporada lenta en la municipalidad. El Consejo municipal no está reunido; menos personas se toman la molestia de visitar al Registrador de instrumentos públicos (Registrar of Deeds); y me gusta pensar que las parejas jóvenes se encuentran en la playa en vez de estar paseando por los pasillos del Registro Civil en busca de la oficina donde se obtiene la licencia para contraer matrimonio.
